Lao Men Standing Up, Speaking Out. (Domestic Abuse)

A recent video by “Lao New Wave Cinema Productions” shines a light on domestic violence, particularly on Lao women. This would be the first video of it’s kind directed towards Laotians. Over the decades, domestic abuses has risen in Lao communities worldwide, but has been unheard of or neglected until now since our culture taught us that speaking up about private family matters is not right. 1 in 3 women will face violence by her spouse or relative in her lifetime. It is also up to Lao men to discuss this matter and stand up with us. Watch the video here.
